When you store a value, you generally use an assignment. The assignment operator is an equal-sign ("="). On the left side of the operator, you put the variable name that you are storing into. On the right side, you put the value to be stored.

In this case the value will be the result of calling the method "int.Parse" and passing it the variable that contains the string as an argument. And when you call a function or method, you always put parentheses after its name. Any arguments being passed go inside the parentheses.

I'll bet you can get it now!
